In 2015, Dewsbury Rams joined forces with Gawthorpe Brass ’85 to record an official club song.

The Rams became the first club in British Rugby League to have their own, bespoke, recorded ‘anthem’ to be played at the ground on match days.

The song, entitled ‘The Amber Ribbon’, is an adapted version of the soundtrack from the film ‘She Wore a Yellow Ribbon’, which has been popularised in recent years as a terrace chant at The Tetley’s Stadium.

An original version, written and arranged especially for the Rams, was recorded ‘on location’ in the Royal Suite at The Tetley’s Stadium on Wednesday 12th July, 2015.

Gawthorpe Brass ‘85 is a thriving local organisation that provides brass lessons, group activities and performing opportunities for young brass players.

Their Youth band and Senior band give regular concerts throughout the year and host classes for “everyone from ages three to 80!”

 

Lyrics:
She wore, she wore, she wore an Amber Ribbon,
She wore it for her lover and he played for Dewsbury!
And if you ask her why she wore that ribbon,
She wore it for her lover and he played for Dewsbury!
Dewsbury! Dewsbury!
She wore it for her lover and he played for Dewsbury!
Dewsbury! Dewsbury!
She wore it for her lover and he played for Dewsbury!
